EVERYNIGHT EVERYNIGHT is an explosive, uncompromising portrayal of systemic brutality in H Division of Pentridge Prison in the 1970s.
It tells the TRUE story of the transformation of Christopher Dale Flannery from young thug to sociopathic killer under the regime of state-sanctioned violence.
This play was Mooney’s semi-autobiographical response to the 1972 Jenkinson Inquiry, which officially downplayed the extent of the conditions in the jail at the time. It pulls no punches in its revelation of the “daily carnival of violence” that was H Division. It is both an important document in recent Australian history, and a moment in the history of Australian theatre when a play was powerful enough to have a significant effect on public policy.
Frank Theatre is dedicated to creating theatre with a social conscience, and is proud to have assembled an auspicious and revered ensemble for its debut production.
